On August 13th, 2021, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Geoscientist in the Field of Geophysics (Approval Notice).

General Field: Geophysics

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Geoscientist

Country of Origin: India

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Texas

Approval Notice Date: August 13th, 2021

Processing Time: 10 months, 30 days

Case Summary:

Whenever a client approaches us with a request to help them file their NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition, we make sure we provide them with the best service possible. We do this by tailoring the application according to the requirements of the client and the case. This includes suggesting our clients to obtain recommendation letters, update their CVs, collect their transcripts, etc. So when in August 2020, we received such a request from an Indian geoscientist with an M.S. in Geophysics, we asked him to follow our lead as we built his case.

We employed our team of experts, who helped him with their immense experience and customized his application further. We made sure that the adjudicating authority was fully aware of his proposed endeavor which significantly benefits oil and gas companies around the world by proposing novel solutions to longstanding challenges facing fracking and oil production. Given that he has proposed several innovative methodologies and technologies to more accurately assess the petrophysical and geophysical properties of rock formations targeted for drilling by oil and gas companies, it was already clear that his projects were of great value to the United States.

Looking further, the next thing that we noticed was the immense experience that our client had reviewing the works of his peers. With 100 peer reviews under his belt, he was already a reliable researcher in the field whose expertise had been called upon on multiple occasions in the past. At the same time, he had published 5 peer-reviewed journal articles and 9 conference articles and these publications have been cited a total of 142 times according to Google Scholar.

The recommendation letters also vouched for the reliability and applicability of his works. Two excerpts are quoted below from these letters:

“Fortunately, [he] has developed novel methods that decrease how much time and money need to be invested in new oil exploration processes. His sound wave exploration methods allow researchers to search for hydrocarbons without engaging in exploratory drilling. Thanks to [client’s] work, the U.S. oil industry is able to discover and exploit new oil reserves more quickly and at a lower cost, thereby allowing the industry to continue its unprecedented growth.”

“[His] research enhances these understandings by detailing clay characteristics for the poorly understood shale clays that compose one of the nation’s largest shale formations, the Permian formation. Furthermore, his research elaborates upon measurement techniques that are equally relevant to shale formations other than the Permian formation. Hence, [client] work enables new shale research and drilling and is an important asset to the American petroleum industry as it continues to raise national oil production to new heights.”

We thank him for trusting us throughout the process. We are certain of his success in his field of endeavor.
